Neither; You should look seriously at the Springy XD or XDM [when it is offered] 9mm Sub Compacts. I have fired Glocks and Baby Eagles, and although they are good weapons, I believe the ergonomics of the Springies are better, especially for a beginner.

Yes I do

If a large hand gun is "blowing" you, I wouldn't see that as a good thing!

both are good

both guns are good try shooting both at a range that has gun rentals everybody have their favorite gun, shoot a couple of different guns and find the one thats comfortable to you, for example i could tell you a HK or walther they may be comfortable to me but maybe not to you

Walther P99AS

I love my P99. It has a great trigger pull (first shot is heavy, the rest are hairpin) and the grip is adjustable to fit your hand perfectly. I have put a few thousand rounds of winchester 9mm white box with no malfunctions. Rent on to see what you think, but I like it better than my glock.

Well

Personally i would choose the glock for the simplicity. I would go with a larger caliber though more stopping power.

if

if that's your only choice, go with the Glock

Shoot both if possible, Pick the one that suits you best.
If you can't shoot them I would also go with the Glock, for simplicity.
They are both very good guns.

Go with the Glock. You'll have a much easier time keeping it working then you will a Baby Eagle.

if it were glock vs baby eagle, i would go with glock, it would be lighter and the trigger pull is a lot better, but go with the one that fits your hand the best

GLOCK OR BABY EAGLE

I THINK YOU SHOULD TRY BOTH AND SEE WHICH WORKS BEST FOR YOU IN COMFORT,EASE OF POINTABILITY,AND WHICH IS MORE COMFORTABLE TO YOU TO CARRY BOTH IN DESIGN,WEIGHT,ETC.THE GLOCK HAS A HISTORY OF BEING A MORE RELIABLE WEAPON ...HOWEVER PEOPLE ALL HAVE THEIR OWN FAVORITES FOR EXAMPLE I DO NOT LIKE GLOCK I PREFER A BERETTA ITS ALL PERSONAL PREFERANCE
